Recent highlights of the modern sale include a William Scott still life (£102,000), and the Fredda Brilliant Studio Collection (£142,250). Recent Old Master sales have featured lots as diverse as a Dutch Golden age marine scene by Abraham Jansz Storck (£50,000) a Luigi Bechi 19th Century genre painting (£25,000), and a 19th/20th Century Indian gouache (£50,000)

Ivory - Recent legislation on the sale of ivory allows the sale of Miniature portraits over 100 years old so we are still very happy to date and value these for possible sale in our March or September auctions.
